Take The Pledge

Stop the Silence. Promote Awareness. Raise your Voice.

  • 1 to 2 million Americans age 65+ report having been abused by a loved one or someone they depend on for care.
  • Only 1 in 14 incidents of elder abuse are ever reported to authorities.
  • Only 1 in 25 cases of financial exploitation are ever reported, meaning there may be at least 5 million financial abuse victims each year.

You can do your part to end the silent epidemic of elder abuse by taking the pledge to stand up against elder abuse. There are 10,000 people who are turning 65 each and every day (Pew Research Center), and we are rapidly approaching a time where nearly 50% of the population will be 65 or older. Together, we can end the silence of elder abuse by standing united and raising our voices against this growing problem. 

Show your support in this movement, by pledging to end the silence, raising awareness in your community, and speaking up against elder abuse.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart." R. Bove

    MY GRANDMOTHER WAS A VICTIM OF ELDER ABUSE, FINANCIAL EXPLOITATION, ISOLATION FROM HER FAMILY, PHYSICAL ABUSE, POA ABUSE, NEGLECT, CHANGING OF HER WILL, AND VARIOUS OTHER CRIMES COMMITTED BY A FAMILY MEMBER, HER BOYFRIEND, AND HER PRESENT ATTORNEY. OUR CURRENT BATTLE IN COURT, WHICH HAS NOW BEEN A 6 YEAR LONG (AND COUNTING), LIVING NIGHTMARE. IF NEED BE, MY MOTHER AND I WILL FIGHT FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES TO GET JUSTICE FOR MY GRANDMOTHER. WHERE WE ARE FROM, THERE IS NO ONE WHO IS LEGITIMATELY CONCERNED ABOUT ELDER ABUSE, NOT TO MENTION PROSECUTION FOR ACTS ASSOCIATED WITH ELDER ABUSE AND IT’S TIME TO MAKE A CHANGE HERE. – FORT OGLETHORPE, GA

    Susan Huff – met you in front of the courthouse in Clark County, Vancouver, WA. I spoke with your team as I was going into the courthouse to get an Order to prohibit my brother (So. Cal. attorney and my brother) from exploiting my mother. I spoke with you after I was granted an Order and a TRO with weapons. I want to help in the fight!!

    I am an elderly person myself, and I am concerned with the plight of the elderly in Uganda. I am starting an organization for the elderly in Uganda that will echo the voice of the elderly voiceless in our country. I am requesting your support and partnership to achieve the best that can be achieved through our combined efforts
